US snow/brig Niagara, a Great Lakes snow from the War of 1812. She's been re-engineered from a variety of possible designs as shown below:

Model design variants

The first design is my interpretation of what she may have looked like in 1813. The second design is as she was re-built for the current full scale sailing replica. The third version depicts her as she was designed for her restoration for the 1913 centennial celebration. The vessel that was actually built in 1913 already deviated substantially from this design.
